What can I test?

What do you like / dislike about the app? Does everything run smoothly? Does something seem “strange” to you? You will quickly notice that many important functions – such as route planning and navigation – are still missing. Please be patient, you will soon be able to test these too!

The functions currently available for testing are:

  • Trip recording: Track your bike rides and pause tracking when you make a stop. During the ride you can always keep track of your route with the bike-optimized map display. Cycling routes are highlighted in yellow.
  • Create your personal profile (or log in with your Bike Citizens user) In your profile, you can see the total number of rides, total time and distance, your average rides per week, average speed, and vertical meters covered.
  • In the overview of the rides you have the possibility to favour or delete individual rides. To do so, swipe left to delete the trip and right to favour the trip (Android) or long press on the ride to select one of these options.
    In the detailed view of your recorded rides, you can track your route again, set tags, and view the altitude and speed history.
